Adventure Background: Gabbersons Keep holds a tale of a seasoned warrior, and

wizard driven mad by the death of his one true love. Jacob Gabberson came from a long line of
metal smiths. Jacob was quite an artisan himself. In his younger years he was not satisfied with
the life of a smithy and tried his hand at adventuring. By mid age Jacob had acquired enough
wealth to build a keep for him self. He hired the best Dwarven craftsmen.
Jacob had quite an industry growing with 4 huge forges in his keep he hired only the best
smithies money could buy. This was not enough for Jacob though. He wanted harder, better
metal so he hired a wizard named Kyle Farland as an alchemist to experiment with the metal.
Jacob and Kyle became the best of friends after some success and Kyle soon moved his
mistress into the keep. Kyles mistress Ehlonna Basington was very fond of horses and riding so
Kyle bought her the finest steeds for her to manage. After a year of living in the keep they were to
be married. Only 3 short months after the engagement Ehlonna met with a fatal horse riding
accident.
Kyle went mad. He was obsessed, researching magic that could resurrect his dear sweet
Ehlonna.
Rumors started to be told. It was said that Kyles magic invited a bad element to the keep.
Smithies and servants started leaving the keep. Poor Jacob was either to loyal to or to afraid of
his friend to confront him. Business plummeted. Eventually the outside world heard nothing at all
from the keep and there are only rumors as to what happened within.
st
This adventure is for 4 to 6 characters of 1 level.
Adventure Hooks: The pcs can be offered a handsome reward of 1,000 gp. to

family.

monk that was previously sent to investigate the keep.
If there is a good cleric in the party the pcs can go to investigate rumors of undead and
other evil presences in the keep.

Area A: Grappling Hook


Standing at the front gates you see a hemp rope hanging from the top of the wall about
15 ft. to your left.
Area B: Trap Door
In this area there is a trapdoor left open in the floor. The latter goes down some 30 ft.
Room 1: Kitchen Servants Quarters.
At the bottom of the latter you find yourself by the northeastern wall of a 40 ft. by 40 ft.
room. The ceiling is approximately 12 ft. high. There is a very large fireplace taking up the
southeastern corner. There are also 3 doors in the room, one next to you on the northern most
part of the eastern wall, one on the southern wall and one on the western wall. This appears to be
some sort of group room for women. There are approximately 16 bedrolls, the same amount of
broken chests and scattered womens paraphernalia, such as hair brushes, broken mirrors,
perfume and clothing. The room appears to have been ransacked and therefore has nothing of
value.
Area F: Cave In
This area is caved in. Any passage through the hallway is completely blocked.
Room 2: Kitchen Servants Quarters.
This room is almost exactly opposite to room 1. This room too, appears to have been
ransacked.
*One mirror in this room is intact though (Spot 15), (search 5). This is a minor wondrous
item. When you place a potion in front of it, the property of the potion is revealed as with an
identify spell. The item is limited by how many times it may be used. There are 11 charges left.
Once they are used the mirror shatters.
Room 3: Kitchen
This room is obviously the kitchen. Its dimensions are 30 ft. by 80 ft. There are 4 doors in
this room, one on either end of the northern wall and one on either end of the southern wall.
There is a 10 ft. radius water well in the eastern portion of the room. There is a 20 ft. wide
fireplace in the middle of the northern wall. The fireplace contains a large cauldron and several
cooking surfaces. In the western portion of the room there are several kitchen tools, such as
cleavers, knives, mixers and containers. Everything is thrown about chaotically and there are
several tables that have been smashed.
Room 4: Grand Hallway.
This area is some sort of grand hallway. It boasts a width of 20 ft. and is approximately
60 ft. long. There are two doors, one on either side of the hallway, around 25 ft. from where you
stand. Suddenly as you get your bearings you hear the rattle of chains and a horrific moaning.
Out of the darkness of the end of the hallway you see a luminous humanoid figure floating slightly
off the ground. As the figure comes towards you it crys Leave here, leave here at once! This
place is truly cursed.
*The figure continues to say this all the way up the hallway. Once the pcs are
within 5 ft. of the figure it disappears. Figures movement rate 15 ft.

Room 5: Armory I
This room is obviously an armory. It is 50 ft. by 60 ft. The only door you see is the one which you
came in. In the northern portion of the room there are 40 human-sized armor stands. There are
only 6 suits still in tact; 3 studded leather, 2 chain mail and one suit of splint mail. To the south
are dozens of weapon racks. These too, supply slim pickings. The only weapons that are still
good enough to sell are; 4 long swords, 2 short swords, and 1 rapier. In the back there is an
entire rack of halberd heads but the wooden shafts are too rotten to be used.
Room 6: Pantry
This room is filled with shelves and containers. There are 5 rows of two-sided shelves, 5
ft. wide 12 ft. long and spaced about 5 ft. from one another. The room is 60 ft. long from north to
south. An abnormal shape makes it 40 ft. wide on the northern half and 50 ft. wide on the
southern half. The extra space creates room for another 15 ft. long shelf on in the southeastern
corner. There is another door directly across the room from you. Suddenly you hear a rustle and
a gnawing from the other side of the room.
*If the pcs investigate read;
As you walk between two rows of shelves you become aware of the smell of filth and rot
and then you spot 4 rat-like animals that are 4 ft. long. They turn from rotten grain bags towards
you and let out a low feral growl.

room. You can see 4 doors in this room, 2 on the east wall and 2 on the west wall. There are 7
grand dining tables spread about this room. The largest of which is parallel to the back wall
behind the fireplace. You catch an eerie feeling as you notice 3 human skeletons slumped over

Room 8: Common Womens Latrine

privies here. The smell of old sewage still lingers in the air. As you scan the room you notice
purple fungus growing out of the privies. The room is 40 ft. deep and 50 ft. wide. There doesnt
appear to be any other doors in the room. This keep seems to have treated their women very well
though. There are actually dividers between the privies, a large mirror and a wash basin. Not bad
